The positive electron by Carl D Anderson( Book )

1 edition published in 1933 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1933 Anderson had looked at 1300 photographs of cosmic ray tracks of which 15 were of positive tracks that could not have a mass as great as that of a proton. He found that they occur in groups of other tracks so were secondary particles and appeared to have the same charge as a proton and a mass less than 20 times the mass of an electron. Dirac's theory of the electron played little part in the initial interpretation of the discovery of what Anderson called positrons. This was a serendipitous discovery not led by theory

The strange case of the cosmic rays( Visual )

1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Uses live action, animation, and documentary film excerpts to probe the mysteries of cosmic rays, their character, and behavior, pointing up the work of scientists in pure research in their constant search for more knowledge of matter and energy
(NO TITLE)( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Research was concerned with: (1) A continuation of the study of high energy cosmic-ray reactions by means of cloud chambers. The purpose of this project is to work in the high energy range not yet possible with machines. (2) A study of the behavior of cosmic rays as a function of solar activity. This is a continuation of the balloon program started in 1951. (3) In 1957 activities under this contract were expanded to include work of Professor R.B. Leighton on the properties of the photosphere of the sun. (Author)

Space-distribution of X-ray photoelectrons ejected from the K and L atomic energy-levels by Carl D Anderson( )

1 edition published in 1930 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A C.F.R. Wilson expansion-chamber was used to study the space-distribution of photoelectrons ejected from a gas by monochromatic x-rays. Distribution curves were obtained for electrons ejected from both the K and the L atomic energy-levels. A more isotropic space-distribution was found for electrons ejected from the L energy-levels than for those from the K energy-level. The distribution of the electrons from the L energy-levels became less isotropic with an increase in the frequency of the incident radiation. For a given radiation, the average forward momentum of the electrons from the K energy-level was found to decrease with an increase in the binding energy of the parent atom. Within experimental error, however, for electrons from the K energy-level, even for different binding energies, the average forward momentum remained the same for a given velocity of ejection of the electron. The average forward momentum of electrons ejected from the L energy-levels level was greater than that for electrons from the K energy-level for a given velocity of ejection. The average forward momentum of the electrons ejected from the K shell was in fair accord with recent results of quantum mechanics. The observed values of the average forward momentum of the electrons ejected from the L energy-levels were slightly greater than those given by the theory
A study of distortions in a cloud chamber by Don H Pickrell( Book )

Cosmic-ray bursts by Carl D Anderson( )

1 edition published in 1933 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In cloud-chamber experiments the frequent occurrence of associated tracks has been observed.(1) It has been pointed out that a simple binary collision cannot explain all the associated tracks.(2)
